We will be holding a Q&A for Page Builder 2.0!

Hey Everybody! We will be putting on a Q&A specifically for Page Builder 2.0 next week. Page Builder 2.0 is the new page builder that we will eventually be migrating to, so we want to make sure everyone gets comfortable with it!

We are going to hold it on Thursday 5/16 at 4pm EST.  We would love for you to join with all of your questions.

Please comment with any questions as well and we will try to go over them in the Q&A. It will be recorded.

We plan on doing a few of these, so if this time do…

QuickBooks Online Integration

Hi there. Does someone have succesfully conected to Quickbooks Online for accounting purposes?

I have some companies that uses simplero and collect money with Stripe, but so far we could no find a way to sync data between Simplero, Stripe, and bank statements to register in QuickBooks.

Downloading Stripe reports I found that thay list the purchase number from Simplero, but looking in Simplero reports for purchases and receipts, when I downloaded them, there is no "purchase id" data in there, Simplero shows "transaction id" data. So we cant link records and transactions.

Can someone here help with this?

Regards,

Juan Cruz

Hi Juan! Let me preface this by saying I am not a bookkeeper. 😇 However, I asked one, and was told that we copy the Stripe payout amount from Simplero, per product, and add it to Quickbooks. 

To get the info from Simplero, go to Sales, then select Receipts.
On the upper right side of the screen, click the ... menu, and select Stripe payouts.
Click the date to see what was paid out on that date for which Products.  
Download as CSV

Who are your mentors/peer support groups?

If you're specifically a solopreneur, who do you look to for mentorship? And how did you find peer support groups? Where do you find support for you as a business owner?

I've been on the lookout for either a mentor or a peer support group for a while, both for the peer aspect, as well as for new information and ideas; it needs to be realistic, cost-effective, and constructive, and I'd love to hear about what you've found.

Automatically optimize your website for higher conversions

Seatext looks amazing.  Has anyone tried it, or other automated conversion-optimization tool? 🙏🏼 


GK
George Kao

Ok I just tried it... and while the marketing looks good, the software is definitely not ready for prime time.  It was translating my website even when I told it not to, and just overall seems quite buggy to use... still, it's an interesting idea and I bet within 2-3 years Ai-optimization of websites (for lowering bounce rates and increasing conversion) will be normalized.  I hope Simplero will add this feature!

Will this community be more visual?

I love that Simplero is so keen on making things visual. However, this community feature isn't yet very visual.

Yes, you can add images and stuff, but they do no appear on top of the post as on Facebook and most other communities I use like Skool, Group.App, etc.

Will this come to the community - and if so, when?  


AH
Andreas Hansen

Perfect! Hopefully it will soon be there.

A simple suggestion:

Put images and videos in full format over the post - just as Facebook.

Or even better:

Make it possible to add a cover image/video to each post and then also include images in the text editor inside the post. This will give maximum flexibility.

Mobilepay available via Stripe...

Mostly for Danish users

Stripe has opened up to have MobilePay as a payment method, it's not applicable in the integration with Simplero yet. So I've made a feature request, so the team has it on their radar.

If you think it's relevant to you, please help upvoting the request here:

Have I told you my favorite thing these days is that notifications (the bell on the right) bring me to ANY/ALL of my Simplero sites instead of having to switch back and forth? It's so freakin' fabulous!

Notifications here in Simplero Community

I was surprised that I randomly found a comment on a thread I started, because I never received an email notification about it.

In the current setup of notifications, is there a way to set it so that I get notified by email if someone replies to one of my threads?

Or more importantly-- if someone mentions me?

Thank you 😊


GK
George Kao

Yes I already had reactions on Mute 🙏🏼

Envisioning a simple way to create course chatbot

  1. For those of us that have the Transcript feature, might it be easy-ish for Simplero to create a document of all transcripts from a course's videos, segmented by module and lesson...

  2. Then feed that into a chatbot for processing

  3. Then allow students to chat with the bot to learn about the course, and which lesson/module to go for more info/human discussion? 🤔


GK
George Kao

@Deb Blum that's great! I am really looking forward to having Simplero integrate this kind of feature. Otherwise I'll likely go with a tool like MyAskAi. I've used them before when it was early days and they've implemented a lot of features since then. My affil link in case anyone's interested -- https://myaskai.com?via=georgekao

How's the new Community feature coming along... ready for prime time? 😊

Hi All,

How's your experience with this new Community feature thus far... do you feel it's ready to be used... with few/no bugs? 😅


MS
Merete Stenner

Ok, so I said I liked the new course design, well that was until I realized how (supposed to be) embedded additional content in lessons is now treated, whether it's PDF's or video/audio. My main focus in this text, (that is copied  from a discussion in a somewhat unrelated feature request about autoplay because I found it would be relevant to add here) is focused on pdf's but the same goes for video or audio as additional content, it's been put there for a reason, and if it's embedded (and even expanded from the start), it's because we want it to be easily accessible to our students. Here goes:

PDF's are almost never the main asset on a lesson (even if the current interface supported that in a good way, it would not be used a lot), the most common case I have seen (and I've seen a lot) is, that the pdf is something that supports a video or audio file, like slides or a textbook that goes with the video/audio content. So it's super important for usability to have the option to have both elements visible on the same page, not in the next lesson and not as some additional hidden stuff down in the corner. I really feel the development is going backwards not forward here, just took a look at some of my own lessons in the new look and it's basically a disaster, Simplero is with the current plan of development literally pouring hundreds and hundreds of their clients carefully spent course design hours down the drain.

That embedded (in the lesson!!) pdf feature on the old layout is killer, it works SO well, and it's fantastic to be able to stop and start the video and the peruse the relevant part of the adjoining pdf. That will not be possible anymore.

What is the inspiration for these new designs? Which and how many of Simpleros current long time loyal users have been asked about how they use their courses, what they're lacking, and what is really working well? Where's the pedagogical evidence supporting the new structure, because clearly there must be some logic behind, that I just haven't realized yet? I'm afraid the strong focus on building community features is taking the educational design side of things hostage in this proces.
And yes, the current development process is turning me into a grumpy old git! and that makes me sad because I really love using Simplero.

Can I talk to some references?

I've pretty much decided to use Simplero, and the last step is to have a conversation with a couple people that have been using the platform for more than a year. Is anybody willing to jump on a zoom call to show me how you use it, and talk about your experiences?

For context, we are a 1-to-1 coaching practice that is trying to grow into a 1-to-many company. We deal with a lot of executives, and high-performing sales people. They have a low tolerance for friction, and often move so fast they have a hard time following even clearly laid out instructions. 


DB
Deb Blum

@Robert Gillette I grabbed time on your calendar.

I'm pretty confident that it's super easy. Like, add your name and email, click and Simplero sends an email with the login user name and password.

PDFs as resources in the new membership site course layout

Are there any plans to support expanded PDFs in the new course layout on membership sites?

The old style allows PDFs to show up expanded and readable, and offer a download link. The new course layout doesn't currently show PDFs expanded.
